BMI View:

We remain sceptical about the ability of new mobile service providers to change the current structure of Norway's telecommunications market. Telenor, the incumbent has been investigated for its dominant position in the market and is likely to be fined, but this is unlikely to change the market structure. Ice.net is targeting the no-frills segment and Get is offering convergence as a MVNO, but the market remains effectively a duopoly between Telenor and Telia-Sonera-backed Netcom. Telenor only has strong competition in broadband sector, where its main competition comes from a range of smaller providers, driven by municipalities. Fragmentation in the broadband sector means it lacks an additional strong national service provider, the presence of which would offer greater competition and more choice for consumers. Latest Updates & Industry Developments

- There were 5.777mn mobile subscribers in Norway in Q216 as the market continues to oscillate between 5.8mn and 5.9mn subscribers, a trend that has continued since 2013.

- The overall broadband market was in decline between 2014 and 2015 (latest available data at the time of writing) according to regulator data, reaching 2.514mn. The fixed market continues to grow, with over 2mn customers and fibre gains offsetting DSL losses, but the declining dedicated mobile broadband segment had a greater impact.

- The fixed voice market continues to decline, falling under 1mn for the first time end-2015 as new players focus on broadband and pay-TV services and as market leader Telenor cannot bundle services to snot bstem its losses.
